Sangam events

Sangam organizes a number of events throughout the year, to promote awareness about Indian culture among MIT members. Many Sangam events also witness a good turnout of non-MIT students from the greater Boston area.

Diwali Night is the flagship event of Sangam, which is organized in the fall term, around the same time as the festival of Diwali. Dhoom is our annual dance party, organized in the Spring term. Sangam organizes many other social events, concerts etc. throughout the year. To keep track of our events, you may wish to sign up for our mailing lists.
